Traveling Classes

About Our Traveling Classes

*** TO SEE OUR SIGN DESIGN OPTIONS   CLICK HERE***

For our Traveling DIY Workshops, we sand, distress, and stain the wood for you ahead of time.  During the workshop you will be able to paint the sign any colors that you want, distress the wood as much as you want, and have lots of fun doing it!  This is a great couples date night idea, girls night out, or a family friendly activity.  People of all ages will have fun during our class!

Have a sign you have seen on Pinterest or another picture of one that you really want to make?  Call us or email us at CreativeExpressionsGalena@gmail.com and we can see if we can design something similar for you to make during the class!  There may be an additional $20 design fee charged for these services.

  • We ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the start time of this class.
  • We do allow children age 7 and older to attend our classes with a paid registration.  They must have a parent or guardian also attending the class with a paid registration.  
  • Each person who attends the class MUST register for the class.
  • Please note that this project does involve wood and no two pieces of wood are exactly the same. The grain, texture and how the wood takes the stain is different in every piece which means each piece of wood will vary slightly and each sign will vary slightly but it will look fine when we are finished!  If the project you make is going to be displayed outside or in an area prone to moisture, we recommend that you protect it using the sealer of your choice which you can purchase at any local home improvement store.
  • Cancellation and Refund Policy:  Due to the customization of our classes, there are NO REFUNDS on any classes or materials!  However, if you are unable to make the class please call me or email me at CreativeExpressionsGalena@gmail.com prior to the class scheduled time and we can arrange for you to attend a different class.  Also, due to the customization of orders, we can NOT make any changes after you register.  We do require at least 10 people to attend a class in order for us to hold it.  If for any reason we have to cancel, such as bad weather or low attendance, we will notify you ahead of time and reschedule the class.  If you can’t make it to the new scheduled date, we will find another class for you to come to in your area or we will ship the sign to you at no cost to you!

Stain Options

Please NOTE that Dark Walnut is our most popular stain color, it is used on most of the signs in our gallery.  If you would like white and you want a clean look, pick the white stain.  If you like the distressed or rustic look, pick the white wash distressed. 

TO REGISTER FOR THE BUNNIES:

To register for one of the bunnies above, under Bunny on the registration form pick which staying you want on your bunny.  Then under the stain colors pick Bunny-Gray, Bunny-White, or Bunny Turquoise.
To Register for one of these bunnies, on the registration form under Bunny pick Bunny-Distressed.  You will pick your paint colors that you want to use on the bunny during the class.  Under stain color pick Bunny-Distressed.  The bunny will come a Dark Walnut color and then you will paint over that.  In the personalization field put BUNNY-TAIL or BUNNY-BOW to let us know which way you would like to make it!!
